Aunt Darlyne was such a kind, energetic, thoughtful person. She shared a birthday (70 years apart) with my youngest daughter and always remembered it. May she joyfully reunite with Uncle Rod and find peace eternal.

Dar was the most thoughtful and generous person I knew. She never forgot a birthday or holiday and always cared about how others were above herself. It was an honor to know her and she is sadly missed. We love you Dar.
